Or have thought (like me) that coupons are a little old fashioned, then this is the post for you!
Because today I am going to introduce you to a ‘Coupon Detective’ no less, the brilliant Jennifer Drew who, let me tell you, is an absolute whizz at extreme couponing.
Previously a teacher, Jennifer has now teamed up with Ashleigh Swan, one of the UK’s favourite money savers, whom I interviewed a while ago to help us all save even more money!
And what’s more there’s a rather lovely story behind how the the two women met.
Pitched head to head in a money saving battle for a major UK broadcaster, Ashleigh told Jennifer, that if she managed to beat her, she would give her a job.
And so, well you can guess what happened next.
Yes, Jennifer won and is now part of the incredible Ashleigh Money Saver team!
Soon she’ll have her very own page on the super saver site and Jennifer has just also launched her Coupon Detective Facebook book page, so make sure you head over there and give it a like, if you want some more money saving tips!
But, before you do, settle down, grab a cuppa and find out more about the Coupon Detective herself.
I recently caught up with Jennifer to find out more about her and her brilliant couponing skills and this is what she had to say:
“The knowledge that you have emerged wiser and stronger from setbacks means that you are, ever after, secure in your ability to survive.
“You will never truly know yourself, or the strength of your relationships, until both have been tested by adversity. Such knowledge is a true gift, for all that it is painfully won, and it has been worth more than any qualification I ever earned.”
And one thing I love to do on this blog, perhaps more than any other, is to share their wisdom and stories with you all.
Because women never get celebrated enough in my humble opinion and well, I’m doing my bit to try and change that. *winks*
Today, I’m sharing a special interview with the wonderful Ashleigh Swan, a mum to three and ‘money expert’ whose business Ashleigh Money Saver have seen her amass a whopping FB audience of nearly 300,000 people! Impressive huh?!
Ashleigh is fast becoming one of the country’s most respected names in money saving and was even named as one of the top 100 Britons to watch last year by the Telegraph, so I’m pretty damn chuffed to feature her.
Grab yourself a cuppa and get comfy! I have a feeling you’re going to love this one.
And of course, sharing them with you!
So Just Shop is one of these wonderful retailers. As soon as I heard about the site, as soon as I saw the stunning pieces and more importantly – as soon as I became aware of the ethos – I knew I had no choice but to bring it to your attention.
Because you see, this is a site that champions and celebrates women.
And well, you all know how I feel about that. *smiles*
So Just Shop – which was recently shortlisted for Virgin Media’s Pitch to Rich campaign – brings together and supports diverse, talented women-led artisan groups from some of the most vulnerable communities in the world.
Which means that every time you buy one of their beautiful pieces – So Just Shop sells everything from jewellery to baby wear – you can feel happy in the knowledge that you are helping to increase the economic empowerment of women across the world, enabling them to build a better life for themselves and their families.
Wonderful stuff huh?
